The Old Mill at Dongara

By Jocelia
This hundred year old mill stands at the entrance to this small town of Dongara in the mid west and wheat belt
of Western Australia. We lived there for a number of years running a restaurant and at one time toyed with the idea
of restoring this old place to run as an eatery and tourist stop. The cost would have been enormous though as it is heritage listed.
But here she still stands, stone work intact and the stone that ground the flour lying usless.
The building is derelict and has been for many years. It is basicly kept as a monument by the local historical society….
I thought this might make a change of interest from flowers and for you to know that there still stands many heritage buildings in this
delightful small twin town of Dongara/Denison…….
Thanks for all your comments and c/cs on Lilac in the sky from yesterday…………..
Do have an enjoyable day again today………..

It still looks to be a fine old building, Jocelia, and it's interesting to hear of your intentions at one time with regard to it.
I have just been into Google Maps to see where Dongara was and have had a look at some of the local sights there.
Two fine images of it, well captured by you.

Stunning detail in both uploads Jocelia, it is a pity that these old buildings cannot be utilized for use today.
